What do you do when the man who stars in your lushest fantasies owns a gym? Why sign up to be trained by him- even if it’s boxing lessons. So that’s exactly what Beth Kennedy does; with the most amazing results. Now she’s living her fantasy and it’s better than she thought it could be, only the “secret admirer” who’s stalking her is making the only gloom in her life.
The first time Harry Morris saw Beth enter his gym, he knew he was in BIG trouble. Just being close to her makes him break out in a sweat, but it’s the fact of the person who seems to have plans for her that really makes him anxious to keep her in sight twenty-four / seven. Now
there’s the added complication of the young man he served with in the army who literally makes him stand at attention.
Being thrown out of his dad’s house after confessing his orientation, Malachi “Ky” West comes to town looking for the one man he’s been in love with for years. New complication- not only is he involved, but Harry’s girlfriend makes him seriously aroused. Now he has to re-figure things, but its when Beth is taken that he realizes that he’s in deeper than he knew, for he loves them both.
Courage to fight for what you want, loving not just one, but two men (and vice versa), stalkers, fathers, confusion and the kind of loving we all wish we had is the backbone of this story of three people trying to come to terms with their true personality as well as their ability to love more than one wholeheartedly. It made me laugh, frown at times, as well as simply enjoy the endearing qualities given them all by Ms. Allen. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
